Planning Board

October 17, 2018



6:00 pm

Present: David Rodrigues, Dave Wiley, Marie Stevenson, Johnathan Stevenson, Linda Moore and Chris McGrath.

Absent: Mike Bruno

Chairman David Rodrigues opened the meeting at 6:00 pm and read the Public Notice for North Country Environmental Services. The applicate has applied for a minor subdivision. Property at Map 209-027, 81 acres total.  (old tucker property) Chairman Rodrigues read the checklist. The board located the corresponding items on the plans. There was no board discussion.

Dave Wiley made a motion to accept the checklist as complete. Chris McGrath seconded. 6-0 motion passes.

Chairman Rodrigues asked if someone was here to represent the applicate. Phil Hastings attorney for NCES explained the subdivision. The plan is to divide the property into 3 parcels.  One being leased to RUDARPA gas facility, 5.49 acres. One lot on either side. One being the most southernly will be 13 acres and the other side of RUDARPA will be 60 acres.  The main reason for subdividing is a condition the Zoning Board put on RUDARPA to be zoned industrial per subdivision approval from the Planning Board.  The waiver that Horizons submitted regarding greenspace will be changed on the documentation and on the final plan. The letter will be included in the RUDARPA file.  The applicant is willing to change the documentation on the final plan that pertains to green space.  They would like the board to approve this subdivision. There is an incorrect direction for the applicant to go to on the subdivision application.  There is no general provision 14. It should be ‘D”.  Clerk will amend this issue.

Linda Moore motion to have clerk change the item from 14 to “D”. Johnathan Stevenson seconded 6-0 motion passes.

Johnathan Stevenson motion to accept the subdivision with the documentation change. David Wiley seconded 6-0 motion passes.

Approved sub-division for NCES Map 209-027 (3-lots) 60 acres, 5.43 and 13 acres.

Chairman Rodrigues thanked Mr. Davis. The next step is going to ZBA for a special exception for the 5.49-acre parcel. Use to be changed to “industrial” 209-027-002 map lot and parcel.  The date for the ZBA is November 20, 2018.
